Lent day 11


Theme: Words


Deuteronomy 11:18-21

Memorize these laws and think about them. Write down copies and tie them to your wrists and your foreheads to help you obey them. Teach them to your children. Talk about them all the time—whether you’re at home or walking along the road or going to bed at night, or getting up in the morning. Write them on the door frames of your homes and on your town gates. Then you and your descendants will live a long time in the land that the Lord promised your ancestors. Your families will live there as long as the sky is above the earth.

Reflection prompts

  • What is the hardest part about opening your Bible?
  • What goals do you have for your relationship with scripture?
  • What can help you get there?


God who speaks, as a people, we seem to have forgotten your Word. Those
who went before us knew scripture like the back of their hands, but I admit, I
can struggle to remember stories and verses. I know you’re in there—inside the
pages of my Bible. Help me find you. Help me crave your word like I crave
connection. Amen. —Prayer by Rev. Sarah Are | A Sanctified Art LLC |
